Nebraskans For The Arts
Earlier this year, both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives approved legislation to replace the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Combined, these two bills contain 13 arts-friendly provisions, including retaining the arts as a core academic subject.
Join arts education advocates across the nation and urge Nebraska members of Congress to support the arts-friendly provisions included in the education reform bill.
Take a few minutes, keep the momentum going, sign the petition and encourage five of your friends and colleagues to do the same.
